Stephanie Smithwhite, 40, denied that a hole that she had cut in her uniform trousers was for a sexual purpose, but the sentencing judge said it was hard to imagine why else it was there. The disgraced officer eventually told investigators how he became obsessed with her and would buzz from his cell to call for her attention. Last month she admitted two counts of misconduct in a public office, with one charge relating to their sexual relationship, said to have lasted between June and December , and the second count regarding her failing to report that she knew he had access to a phone. Warren was known to have previously continued to run his criminal enterprises from behind bars using mobile phones, but Smithwhite did not report him using a phone to contact her. He was also known to have started relationships with other prison staff previously, but Smithwhite failed to resist him, despite undergoing training about manipulative and corrupting inmates.
